This is such a fun project for kids and grownups alike. We had so much fun creating these simple felt fish. We used very inexpensive felt that you can find most anywhere. I drew our fish patterns by hand on paper, and we cut them out to trace onto our felt.
We cut two pieces to provide a front and back. This way we could stuff our fish with a small amount of batting. We used embroidery thread to blanket stitch the fish together.
You can do any stitch you like.
